  4. In!

    I went to reply in the last one and it said it was closed! I was going to say I recently lowered the pickups in my Spector and it sounds even nicer. Smooth and low!

    Holy crap. I missed the entirety of Part 23...

    Hey guys, I'm about to put my Zebop for sale here in the classifieds.

    If any of you guys are interested, let me know. I'll give you guys a super-spector-club price. :bassist:

    It's all a matter of the size pic you are linking to. Photobucket is what I use. Get a free account and upload your full sized image. It'll give you the link URL and you paste that into the "Insert Image" box and you're in.

    Okay, thanks.
    Actually, I think the size of these pictures is smaller than I remembered. I'll be sure to get better pictures a little later.

    When I discovered two truss rods in the first Legend 6 I owned I was floored as 1. There is no literature anywhere, in print or on site, that mentions this, and 2. The Euro and USA 6's still only have one. Huh? :confused:

    Now, first the Jerzy Drozd setup guide (free download gang http://www.jerzydrozdbasses.com/akcndfr54jdhrei567/Ultimate_Guide_ver100.pdf ) is pretty good about describing and dealing with dual truss rods. However, I asked PJ whether these were parallel or diagonal rods. He said parallel, but I disagree for two reasons: 1. You can plainly see from the ends they heading down the neck in slightly widening directions like diagonal rods do. And 2.........:

    Jerzy Drozd says parallel rods (staying roughly together down the neck at the same straight direction) should ultimately end up at the same relative tightness. I've never dealt with any so I'll take his word on that.

    Diagonal, however, should be setup with the treble side rod overall, with the bass side rod being basically loose or slightly tightened for fine tuning the bass side of the fingerboard. This was confirmed on both of my Legend 6's as this is exactly how they worked for me.

    Anthony Jackson also sort of confirmed this with a story about one of his recent Fodera 6's (probably #9), having diagonal rods. He noticed one day that, even though the bass was still set at optimum, the bass side rod was completely loose, doing nothing. He says any future basses will now have just one rod in a "secret" location (Some secret :rolleyes:. Wanna' bet it will be basically where the treble side rod is in the two rod setup. :smug:).

    Yes I did. Should be here tomorrow. I made the guy an offer after the auction ended for the 3rd time. He accepted. I paid less than what he was asking but probably more than you should for a ns2a. If it plays as good as my other ns2a, it will be worth it to me.

    Yeah its you, me, and I recall that someone else ordered a 6-string.
